“The only thing constant is change” – Heraclitus. This is a quote that was true in the past, is true now and will remain true in the future. As true as that is, people in general are opposed to change at first even if that change is for the better. 2 in 1s is a change that is slowly but surely transforming the workflow across various industries and while people did hesitate at first, they are now taking a liking to it and are embracing its potential. Let’s take a look at a few industries where 2 in 1s have changed the workflow and how.

2 in 1s vs Laptops: Which one should you get?

1 Laptops and 2-in-1s are not so different, especially when the latter is meant to act like a laptop when necessary, but this “when necessary” is the part that makes 2in1s subtly different and puts them in an evolutionary perspective. Both serve the same purpose – on the go computing, but how do they differ and which one should you go for? Let’s find out. Continue reading “2 in 1s vs Laptops: Which one should you get?”

A modern lifestyle entails the use of a range of devices. From laptops to tablets to e-readers, technology is all pervasive and is an integral part of all forms of content consumption and creation that goes on today. Given the unified focus on simplification of technology and enabling access, it is surprising how often we forget that having a disjointed experience across hardware is perhaps one of the biggest breakaway point. While we are still far from a perfect solution, 2-in-1 devices are leading us towards a future where a single device will be able to function as a one stop destination for all needs. With that in mind, we decided to poke around to see how we could consolidate our daily technology related and ended up with more than a few applications. Here’s our top five use cases for a 2 in 1 around the house and more. Continue reading “Top 5 use cases for a 2-in-1 laptop”

Making a case for the versatility of 2 in 1s

intel_2in1s (2)

The versatility of a 2-in-1, convertible or a tablet-laptop hybrid is unmistakable. What is at first glance an additional gimmick tacked on for the heck of it requires some deeper introspection into the very usage patterns of most users to see why they’ve become all the rage.

2 in 1s : How convergence of technology has led to divergence

intel_convergence (6)

Technology is constantly evolving and with each new breakthrough in technology, a new gadget or device is spawned. This is true especially in the past century where we had corded landlines which then evolved into mobile phones, film cameras that evolved into digital cameras, record players that evolved into mp3 players and PMPs (portable media players) that we could put in our pockets. The list goes on and on.

2-in-1s are tailor made for two different scenarios, work and play. For work, the keyboard stays put and for play, the keyboard gives way to the touch screen, but what makes the experience complete is a combination of a 2in1’s hardware and software, which, of course, is Windows. The latest iteration of Microsoft’s flagship operating system, Windows 10, adds a feature called “Continuum” which clearly, is made for 2in1s. So let’s go ahead see how it helps with the whole 2in1 experience.

Why 2 in 1s are great for traveling professionals

Micromax Canvas LapTab_fonearena-03

In the age of multiple personal computing devices, packing for travel is always a big dilemma “Which device to take along with the smartphone?”. A tablet is the obvious first choice but then, most tablets aren’t good enough if you’re traveling for work, so most of the times, a chunky laptop ends up inside the bag along with a tablet. It not only is impractical, it makes the bag heavier too. There is of course, a solution and it’s called a 2-in-1. Let’s see why they are best suited for traveling professionals.
